LOL Fridays is a fantastic social club for young adults with Down’s Syndrome. The club takes place every other Friday evening in Whitchurch Methodist Church hall where volunteers assist the young people to engage in various different activities.
Activities include board games, arts and crafts, karaoke, ball games and playing on the Wii. In previous years volunteers have also thrown Halloween and Christmas parties! There is also an end of year trip that takes place away from the Church.
It’s the volunteers’ job to help create a fun, safe and supported environment where the young adults can socialise and engage altogether, which in turn helps build their social and communication skills. The club has been a huge success since its onset 5 years ago and we now have 13 regular attendees who look forward to the fortnightly event.
Volunteers must be committed, patient and, above all, be able to have fun!!
